This exhibition, featuring a collection of glazed ceramics rich in historical, cultural and aesthetic value, will raise public awareness of the importance of preserving Vietnam's cultural history.

The distinctive collection of Bat Trang pottery from the 14th to 20th century is on display at the National Museum of History on International Museum Day (May 18).

The exhibition "Bat Trang Ancient Pottery" is divided into four parts, including "History of Establishment", "Bat Trang Pottery in the 14th Century", "Bat Trang Pottery in the 15th to 18th Century", and "Bat Trang Pottery in the 19th to 20th Century".

With a long history of imbuing the quintessence with unique national cultural values, Bat Trang pottery has been collected and researched for many periods.

Through the exhibition, the National History Museum aims to introduce a rich collection of glazed ceramics with historical, cultural, and artistic value to the domestic and foreign public, thereby raising awareness of preserving and promoting national cultural and historical values.

The exhibition will last until the end of September 2023 at the National Museum of History, 1 Trang Tien, Hanoi.
